  • Call for Letters of Intent for new officers. If one is opposed, we will have a meet the candidates and the vote will be at December commons. Deputies needed for all positions.

– New refund Policy

Francisco: Change to provide timing window regarding profitability. Refund requests 7 days or more before event will be granted regardless of event profitability.

Mathghamhain supports

Uji to make adjustment and have new version for vote ASAP

– Provincial Storage Unit: 2 basically equal sites in different locations: Mt. Vernon (accessible by 6 train) and Floral Park

Populace needs to vote on storage, and then financial committee. Kitchen gear, green-and-white, and gold key will be stored. Cost is about $1,200/yr. Needs easy accessibility to people w/vehicles and close to event sites, plus accessibility from city is also good. Seems like Mt. Vernon is more accessible to all, but both are basically equivalent.

Populace vote: 10 in favor of Mt. Vernon, 0 in favor of Floral Park

Angelica: upcoming events/workshops/practices

Weekly fighter practice will be moving indoors to Manhattanville. Goat’s Inn this weekend.

Crown Tourney: Valgard and Padraig fighting in it. Provincial Apple Picking 9/29 and Cider Pressing 9/30. A&S future banner workshop? Whyt Whey museum outing 11/6. St. Andrew’s in An Dubh 11/5. 100 Minutes War 11/19. Virtual A&S 11/17
